Power of Mantra Retreat ONLINE – Purification
Bhikshuni Lozang Yönten
October 27 - 30, 2022
This is the registration for the ONLINE RETREAT only.
The last of three complimentary, weekend retreats to the Power of Mantra series with Ven. Yönten. This weekend retreat aims to demystify Deity-Yoga (Buddhist Tantra) practice for students of Buddhism who are newer to these practices and also invites depth and richness to the practice of senior students. This retreat will explore the main Kriya (Action) Tantra deities of purification (35 Buddhas and Vajrasattva) introduced in the online program. Being a participant of the online program isn’t required, but strongly recommended.
This retreat will be a mediation intensive to allow students to dive deeper into the sadhanas (tantric practice manuals) specific to the deity-yoga practices taught in the Power of Mantra Tue/Thu class.
There will be four deity-yoga meditation sessions that will include prayers, mantra chanting, and silent meditation, as well as one session a day devoted to Q&A to clarify practice and questions that may arise.
